permanent normal trade relations to russia. this past august russia joined the world trade organization, giving its members full access to russia's rapidly growing market. reduce tariffs, and ensure transparency when implementing trade measures. however, while foreign competitors are currently benefiting, the u.s. will not receive any of these benefits until congress authorizes the president to grant russia permanent normal trade relations. simply put, american companies, workers, and farmers are being put at a competitive disadvantage. last year my home state of michigan exported $225 million worth of goods to russia. despite many of its best products facing tough competition from foreign competitors. with this agreement in place, farmers and producers in my district will be assured of more predictable market access for the crops and arkansas urel goods, while manufacturers will enjoy reduced tariff rates for michigan-made vehicles and equipment. as the world trade organization member, russia has agreed to comply with the rule of law. though these reforms won't happen overnight, russia

, whether that's the multi-lateral process with russia, china, britain, fans, and germany involved, but also possibly see if there should be direct talks between the united states and iran. we haven't had those kind of talks really in three decades since the iranian revolution started, and i suspect, suzanne, he will have bipartisan support for that in washington d.c. and he will have a lot of support internationally now that the campaign is over. the big question is whether the iranian government will be willing to come in a serious way to the negotiating table. they have not shown that over the last couple of years. i think the pressure is actually going to be on the iranian government. >> do you think that the economic pressure on iran is coming to a breaking point here, a boiling point, where you will see iran come to the table? >> i think the sanctions are beginning to hit the iranian government very hard. both the e.u., oil embargo, the u.s. central bank sanctions, and just look at the indicators of that. the iranian riel, the -- it has been -- the ranian have been hit hard in their in

, look, we have the leaders of france and britain and china and russia and the u.n. and we're trying to prevent nuclear weapons, you know, you should probably not meddle in this. that's a winnable argument. i think particularly coming out of this -- obama out of a strong election. no one like gaddafi. no one liked libya. no one liked the soviets. it's doable. >> to partially answer the same question. the issue for many in congress is whether this negotiation quote-unquote allows iran to continue enriching at the 3.5% level or not. the historical position of the united states going back to the early 2000's has been that there should be a suspension of all enrichment as a confidence-building measure. from what you're saying, jim, we're well past that point and iran has a lot of truth on the ground in terms of additional centrifuges and they want the -- their so-called right under the nonproliferation treaty to be recognized. the question is at what level do they continue. >> i think there's also -- i agree with that. i want to go on here. there is a debate over countries have the right

diplomacy. this is something that really works. i try to expand it to russia, which i think is kind of a cool idea, but got shut down by the embassy. but at any rate, it's a great idea, needs to be bigger. used to be the chairman of the bbc. has been impossible mission -- and possible because this has to do two things at the same time that are very difficult to reconcile, although in my view it's an excellent job of records failing. number one, it is a tool of american foreign policy. number two, it is a real, journalistic institution that needs to abide by normal journalistic principles. so how can he do both of those the same time? well, it is hard especially if you have members of congress who don't understand what the law actually says. so i've actually come around to the view, which i never stated before and i kind of have resisted this for a long time. they really do think it needs to be much more -- needs to be brought into the broader foreign policy making apparatus of the united states government. otherwise i don't think it's going to survive. so i think that tension needs

arabia and russia to become the world's largest oil producer by the year 2017 thanks to the shale oil revolution and the u.s. could become energy independent. but some analysts warn the u.s. oil boom is still in its infancy and continued growth at levels predicted might not be able to be guaranteed. phil flynn, seen i don't remember market analyst at price futures group. could this be energy independence in your foot, phil? >> yes it can. yes it can. all those people said we couldn't grow our way to energy independence, they're wrong. the people in the industry are very excited about that. you know why this is good, not only for the obvious geopolitical national security things but also because our economy needs something right now. it need as boost. it needs a driving force. energy and energy production probably will be that boost. it will be the new internet revolution, the new thing that could drive the economy for the next 10 to 20 years if not longer. rick: phil, i thought this administration was anti-drilling stood in the way of these kinds of advances. shot down the keystone oi

blamed missteps in countries such as brazil and russia for the miss. it assured the issues should be resolved by the end of the year. u.s. grocery chain whole foods has posted third quarter profits in line with forecasts. total sales jumped 24% in the period as consumers continue to switch towards organic produce. however the company did warn investors sales have been hit by the impact of hurricane sandy which left many of their customers without power. and that sent shares lower in after hours trade as you can see there, shedding about nearly 3%. we'll keep an eye on that. and just when new york city thought it was all over, a nor'easter called athena has smacked the tri-state area overnight dumping inches of snow over some of hurricane sandy's hardest hit areas. wind and heavy snow have brought down you power lines and electrical wires and thousands who lost power because of sandy just lost it all over again. now, caroline roth joins us from zurich because over in zurich, swiss re has reported results that have cheered the market. 1.6% at the moment. >> absolutely. earlier on in
that tokyo, st. petersburg, russia london the netherlands, all of them have some sort of storm surge barrier. but they are pricey. we're talking about however, $50 billion storm called sandy. >> where could they be built? >> realize that new york city is a victim of geography. it's like a funnel. if you have a gigantic storm coming in from the atlantic the power is concentrated as it goes past sandy point where it can savage staten island, inundate wall street and a second surge can come from the east river. so we need a barrier that gives us a comprehensive protection against this kind of storm surge. >> how much would it cost? >> well, we're talking about the fact that each of these barriers could cost about $1 billion. the whole thing would cost on the order of $10 billion, perhaps even $15 billion. >> show us how it works. >> here's how it works. there are three choke points whereby can you actually stop a storage surge. first, it's around arthur kill here around staten island. the other is around the verazano bridge. third, around the east river. each of these would
the u.s. will overtake saudi arabia and russia to become the world's biggest global oil producer by 2017. this is the international energy agency. so becoming a net exporter. joining us is tom bergen at reuters. if that forecast is right, how does that change the politics of oil? >> good morning, ross. yes, that's a prediction now that a lot of analysts have been making over recent months. so it's a pretty broad view that the u.s. will by the end of the decade potentially become the biggest oil producer in the world. there are also predictions that just factory and other things like energy efficiency, basically cut it reliance on on oil imported from outside from immediate neighbors mexico and canada almost to nothing. and if america is not emporting as much oil as it does currently, perhaps for energy to be such a focal point of its foreign policy won't be so large. and already you have exactly within the oil and gas industry pushing the case for shale on the basis that it would save the country a lot of money on overseas military expenditure. >> if you take in that oil, shale gas toget
